This evening is going to be devoted to Carola Grindea, a remarkable musician who had greatly influenced music development in many aspects at the last few decades of 20th century in the UK . She was a great pianist and an internationally recognised piano pedagogue who founded European Piano Teachers Association (EPTA), International Society for the Study of Tension in Performance (ISSTIP) as well as Beethoven Society. Prof. C. Grindea was a writer of several books as well as an establisher of ISSTIP and EPTA journals. She had also evolved the ‘Grindea Technique’ that brings total liberation of body and mind of any tension that was successfully used on more than 1000 musicians within ISSTIP Performing Arts Clinic. In addition, her pioneering work echoed greatly in the national press and other media.
In celebration to her life, her friends and colleagues are going to perform diverse music styles that Carola had enjoyed, including composers such as Beethoven, Liszt, Kreisler, Rachmaninov, Brahms together with other contemporary musicians from around the world. The venue organisers’ Marina Petrov-Stoykovich (Piano) and Maya Momcilovic-Jordan (Piano) as well as guest performers including Silva McQueen (Soprano), Robert Atchison (Violin) and Olga Dudnik (Piano) are going to perform piano music as well as various ensembles.
In memoriam to Prof. Grindea and her love of arts, there will be an Art Exhibition by Fine Art Escape that can be viewed before the concert and during the interval.
